comment Can I “shove” with a reach weapon?
@Lexible while the rules technically allow a whip to push. I would not allow any shift in position away from the wielder of the whip as this doesn't make sense given how the weapons works. I would allows movement to the sides or towards the wielder as that does make sense. My guess that many referees would rule the same ways so be prepared for yours to do so as well.

comment Does the lack of automatic AC scaling mean you get easier to hit as you level up?
@MikeRiverso yes previous editions stated that but the healing and rest rules never reflected it in the way that 5e does. That the big change that the fatigue/skill aspect of hit point has both flavor and mechanical support.

comment How can I make a deal with a devil?
That how things appear at this time. Probably there are lover level spells that could work including the option of just beating down the demon/devil and opt NOT the kill it when it goes negative.

comment Ordinary people and magic in D&D5
@waxeagle the rules as written do not specify a default setting. Instead they use the various published settings as example with the Forgotten Realms used the most.

comment What is a more realistic carrying capacity for a backpack?
The list attribute is how much a backpack can carry. He want to change that rule. He needs information on what to change it too. In addition full answer would express any consequence of the change in terms usable in a the game. I don't see any issue with this question as RPGs are about experiencing a setting either imagined or based on reality.
